The Connection’s gone modern.

Following a six-month renovation, Boulder’s only bowling alley reopened in the University Memorial Center in February. In addition to its 10 bowling lanes, The Connection features billiards and pingpong tables, video games and food. Karaoke, poker and trivia nights also will occur when campus reopens.

This is The Connection’s second renovation since opening in 1956.
